Jing Mu, mentee in the 2019 MedTech-Pharma in VIC (The University of Melbourne)

Jing Mu received a B.Eng. degree in Automotive Engineering from the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology, Shanghai, China, in 2014 and a M.Eng degree (with Distinction) in Mechatronics from The University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in 2017. Jing is currently a second year Ph.D. candidate at The University of Melbourne.

Jing’s research focuses on the effective use of electroencephalography (EEG) in helping people with upper-limb disabilities to command assistive robotic devices. Her work on identifying the spatial resolution of visual stimuli in SSVEP-based brain-machine interfaces has been presented at the 9th International IEEE EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering (NER’19) in March 2019.

During her master’s study, Jing and her teammates developed a low-cost, dexterous, compact, compliant prosthetic hand controlled with electromyographic (EMG) signals. She also participated in the EPICS (Engineering Project in Community Service) program, where a low-cost multi-sensory toy, the “Rainbow Box”, was developed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
